Nuclear power plant shut down for planned maintenance

Operators at Exelon Nuclear’s 2,345 MW Limerick Generating Station, 21 miles northwest of Philadephia, Pa., removed Unit 2 from service on May 18 for a scheduled maintenance outage.

During the outage, Exelon (NYSE: EXC) said workers will replace two steam relief valves, essential components of the plant’s steam piping system.  Plant personnel will complete the maintenance and fully test the new components before returning the unit to service.

Limerick Unit 1 will continue to operate at full power during the outage.
